Eurovision 2010

Just had a top night watching this year's Eurovision Song Contest. The competition was pretty good this year - no outstanding entries, but solid, I thought. Highlights of the night were the Greeks with their mixture of butch tribalness and Belarus' beautiful butterfly costumes. It was won by the Germans, so next year's competition will take place in Germany. I haven't been back to Germany since I lived there - If it's possible to get tickets, I might seriously think about going along - it's on my list of things to do before I die. (Quite low down, though). Anyhoo, here are some pictures - only two of us went in fancy dress (well done Ruth!), I had to explain my efforts to the younger ones (I went as Uncle Bulgaria, in case you're wondering). Fortunately, nobody seems to have taken a picture of my grey furry chaps.

Learning to Cook

Yup, this pretty much sums it up.

The Literal Party for Change

Nope, I've not gone all political. It's a party. And I literally want your change.

The aim is to raise much needed funds for Action for Children and have a bit of fun on the way. I'll give you a collecting box to throw your spare change in - and on Saturday 14th January, you bring it with you to get free access to the party.

WHEN: Saturday 14th January, 7.30pm

WHERE: Plymouth - exactly where depends on how many people we get!


There's no minimum amount needed to be raised, I just want to hear those boxes rattling. And if you can't make the party, but still want to have a box, that's fine too.

I'd like at least 100 people to sign up, if possible - the more people, the better the party! And the more we can raise for this fabulous charity.

Action for Children is committed to helping the most vulnerable children and young people in the UK break through injustice, deprivation and inequality, so they can achieve their full potential. 95p of every pound raised goes directly towards helping kids.

If you want to take part, please email jamie.lee@actionforchildren.org.uk or visit the event page on Facebook - The Literal Party for Change.

Paying Lib Service

I called Liberal Democrat HQ today and requested a copy of their manifesto.

They replied "sorry, we've sold out"

I said "I know that, but could I get a copy of your manifesto"?
